|Violeta Gomez - Candylove [HR041] - Violeta Gomez|
Although Violeta Gomez is better known as a singer-songwriter (or as a controversial photographer), this album features a bunch of instrumental low-fi pop tracks recorded on an old Roland SH-101 synth, with just some sparse vocal overdubs. And although she defines it as "a toy record", the subtitles reads "a journey to the center of desire". Of course, the latter is truer than the former since this album, as all Violeta's recent work, explores the relation between innocence and lust.

|Superelvis - What About Beauty? [HR008] - Superelvis|
Recorded during the 1998 split-up, these are the last sessions of Superelvis with their charismatic singer Anki Toner. These recordings were discovered and mixed by Raimon some months later. Although Alfredo thought it wasn't a good idea, the others went on with the project. The final editing and production was done by Anki in the autumn of 1999.
